Griffiths the Hearse, the only undertaker in town, hides his money by secretly sewing his cash into his wife's unmentionables. Unbeknown to him, his wife is plotting to run away with Evans the Milk. As the 'elopement' day approaches Mrs Griffiths decides it's time to swap the old for the new in every way, and replaces her old corsets. And so the farce begins... Griffiths realises his wife has disappeared and rushes off in pursuit of her - and her undergarments. When he catches up with her, he retrieves what he believes to be the precious girdle, but his money is still missing. In a fury he accuses the milkman of theft. Out to clear his name, Evans must get his hands on the original underwear. As Griffiths and Evans race to find the lost girdle, chaos ensues. Will Griffiths get his money back? Or his wife? Does he even want his wife back? And who's taking care of the milk round?
